First, our Halloween party/Store Anniversary party provided an awesome chance to dress up (because we all know that cosplayers go into some sort of weird withdrawl if they don't dress up often enough). The party was sponsored by J. Valentine, a FABULOUS clothing line for clubbers and ravers. They do these great furry animal costumes and we got to pick one we would like to rock at the party and for the month of October while we were at work. I did not pick a furry animal but, instead chose this too-too bad ass number. I was beyond stoked and wanted to walk around and shout things like "Skoal" and "Another Ale For My Good Friend, <insert name>" although a fair amount of quotes from Game of Thrones made their way in.
This is the Dragon Slayer Costume I chose.
So exciting news number two! Comikaze was a resounding success in my book, but mostly due to the fact that my favorite artist Jamie Tyndall thought my outfit was "cool". So cool in fact that he gave me a complementary print that he signed of my character, Babydoll. He took a photo with me and the print and put it on his facebook...where I promptly stole it off to share with you!

And...a little Halloween update. I managed to find a little time to make it out to West Hollywood to play "I Spy" in the crowd of party goers. I chose to wear another fabulous J. Valentine creation and tried to take as many pictures with matching characters as possible. Somehow though, my extremely badass tail never made it into a single photo, which may me a little sad. Also, there wasn't a single camera between us, so all I have are cell phone photos. >.<

|You sir...were my favorite!|
I promise that some good updates are coming your way, including some play by play on my first prop making experiences. You'll laugh, I'll cry, and the world will keep on spinning. <3
